Obesity is associated with the development of asthma, which is often difficult to control. To understand the immunological pathways that lead to obesity-associated asthma, we fed mice a high-fat diet for 12 weeks, which resulted in obesity and the development of airway hyperreactivity (AHR), a cardinal feature of asthma. This AHR was independent of adaptive(More)
BACKGROUND The acute consumption of dietary nitrate has been shown to improve exercise capacity in athletes, healthy adults and subjects with peripheral vascular disease. Many COPD patients have reduced exercise capacity. We hypothesized that acute nitrate consumption might increase incremental shuttle walk test (ISWT) distance in COPD subjects. METHODS(More)
Sup. Fig. 1. ILC3 cells are the main source of IL-17A in obese mice a. We gated on  T cells (upper panels) or  T cells (lower panels), and examined IL-17A production. b. CD45LineageIL-13cells were assessed by FACS (upper panels). CD45LineageIL17Acells were further analyzed for IL-13 production (lower panels). c. HFD induce IL-17A-, but not IL-22or(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES To evaluate vitamin D (25(OH)D) levels in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and possible relationships to OSAS severity, sleepiness, lung function, nocturnal heart rate (HR), and body composition. We also aimed to compare the 25(OH)D status of a subset of OSAS patients compared to controls matched for important determinants of both(More)
